06 Apr Otherworldly Adventures | Shannon Chakraborty Interview
Shannon Chakraborty is our guest for this episode of the Love Your Library podcast. Chatting to us about all things fantasy, we get to learn all about her latest book and the kick-off novel to her new series, The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi. Following the journey of a scandalous pirate traversing the high seas for one last job that’ll go down in history, the book is described as Ocean’s Eleven meets Sinbad the Sailor, which will undoubtedly delight fans of Chakraborty’s richly descriptive and imaginative work.
We also catch up with Adrian, a Library Team Assistant working across a few of our New Forest Libraries, about his out-of-this-world recommendation: Andy Weir’s Project Hail Mary.
